About Growing up Travelling
"I'm happy to announce that I have partnered with an amazing publisher to create my first photography book, Growing Up Travelling. I'm planning a beautiful black and white coffee table book. This book is based off the beauty I emerged myself in with my travels to Ireland, specifically the Irish Traveller children. I'm quite excited and proud of what's to come, this is a project I have been passionate about for many years now and cannot wait for you guys to be able to take it home with you." - Jamie Johnson
The US American photographer Jamie Johnson has been traveling around the world for twenty years. She is best known for her touching portraits of children. When she came to Ireland for the first time in 2014, she immediately felt connected to the cosmos of the Irish Travellers and would visit and photograph them time and again for five years. The encounter with the children of this extremely poor and socially discriminated population group fascinated her and then even changed her views as a mother. Fascinated by the resilience and optimism of the children. Those who are proud of the culture and traditions of the Irish Travellers. Johnson’s portraits aim to promote the perception and respect of children as such. Far removed from the common prejudices of society.
